David & The Citizens – Oblivion lyrics

Won't you dry the tears from my eyes?
Won't you walk me through the night?
Won't you help me leave this stinking shadow behind?

There's no story to tell, there's no magic
I was given a life and I lived it
I was given two hands and I used them
I was given a heart and I lost it

In your eyes
But your eyes are gone
But your eyes are gone into oblivion

There's snow in the air and spring in the ground
As we're dragging ourselves around and around
And I'm laughing loud to melt the ice
I play the clown again

Somewhere in between the clouds
Somewhere in this roundabout
There's a voice that screams for life
There is love and there is light

In your eyes
But your eyes are gone
But your eyes are gone into oblivion

How long? How long?
You kick one off, you shoot one down
Another one will come around
My head is spinning, I try to stand still

If you see me will you help me
Say you will!

'Cause there's a monster inside
And it sees through my eyes
And it speaks through my mouth
And it moves me around
But there is calm

In your eyes

Time arrives in tidal waves
It is washed across my face
Like when I was a boy, back in the old days
Like when every breath was uncertain

I held my head up, I held it high
I played my cards the best I could
I thought you understood
I thought you understood
I thought you understood
Every good thing could survive

In your eyes
But your eyes are gone
But your eyes are gone into oblivion
(Your eyes are gone into oblivion)
Into oblivion
(Your eyes are gone into oblivion)
Into oblivion
(Your eyes are gone into oblivion)
Into oblivion
(Your eyes are gone into oblivion)
